Title: Twisted Bond
Series: Holly Woods #1
Author: Emma Hart

I’m an Italian-Texan woman in a family full of cops. I’m passionate and shoot before I think. You only f*ck with me if you’re stupid.

Photograph cheating spouses. Hand over the evidence. Cash my check.
That was my plan when I returned home to Holly Woods, Texas, and became a private investigator.
Finding the dead body in my dumpster? Yeah… Given the choice, I think I would have opted out of that little discovery, especially since all three of my brothers are cops. And my Italian grandmother is sure the reason I’m single is because of my job.
Of course, my connection to the victim is entirely coincidental. Until I’m hired by her husband to investigate her murder and shoved bang-smack into the path of Detective Drake Nash. My nemesis, a persistent pain in my ass, and one hell of a sexy son of a bitch.
Shame he still holds a grudge from that time I shot him in the foot twelve years ago, or we could have something. In another life.
So now all I have to do is avoid my nonna’s blind dates, try not to blackmail my brothers into giving me confidential police files, and absolutely do not point my gun at Drake Nash. Or kiss him. Or jump his bones.
All while I hunt down the killer.
Sounds totally simple—until a second body proves that sometimes things that start as coincidences don’t always end up that way…

(Twisted Bond is book one of the Holly Woods Files series and while it does not end in a cliffhanger, it is not a standalone.

Twisted Bond begins when hot shot ex-cop now private investigator Noelle finds a body dumped in her dumpster at work. She realizes that things are going to get bad fast, especially when the lead cop on the case is detective Drake Nash. They don’t get along at all. Drake and Noelle fight like cats and dogs, but somehow they must work together to find out who the killer is before Noelle is the one dead.

This book was a huge surprise. I was not expecting it to be as good as it was. It contained a great plot line, with a really great mystery, and lots of laughs as well.
Then the heroine of the story was a tough, funny, strong type of woman. I adored her a whole lot. She didn’t take it over board, and she was just great all around. Then when she and Drake got together sparks flew all over the place. I also loved getting to see Noelle’s brothers, Nonna, and the rest of the gang. I look forward to reading more books in this new series by Emma Hart.
